And new research begins: Latrobe’s Clifton House

As I launch into the spring semester, along with new knowledge comes the research on a specially-selected topic by Dr. Brownell: The Clifton House.

As I launch into the spring semester, along with new knowledge comes the research on a specially-selected topic by Dr. Brownell: The Clifton House.

This house, attributed to Latrobe, once stood on the corner of North 14th Street and Cypress Alley.  It was long and narrow, built ca. 1790 and demolished in the summer of 1903.  It was once a fine manor house, then a fashionable boarding house (hotel), then during the Civil War a hospital, then tenement, and finally and abondoned structure.

Over the next four months let’s see how much life we can breathe back into this beautiful lost building.
